There is no denying the fact that Nigeria government alone is incapable of tackling the mounting spate of insecurity issues nationwide due to continued incidents of criminality in the country.
Tackling insecurity in the country requires,in my opinion, the collaboration of the Nigerian government, the citizens, local and international security interventions because of alleged influx of sophisticated weapons into the country as recently acknowledged by the government.
Reliable news reports have comfirmed that Osun State Police Command has apprehended 21 young suspects for alleged participation in cultism, kidnapping and other associated illegal conducts.
Olokode made it known that the accused were successfully apprehended in Osogbo, Ife and Ikire, revealing that some suspects were let go when it was obvious that they were wrongly captured and that those apprehended were cultists and abductors.
